Living area tables do not should just be practical, they may also add to your décor. If you do not have a family or have a small family and do not spend much time in the living area, then perhaps you want to choose a more decorative table rather than a functional table. Decorative tables might be just as much fun as practical ones. You can use them to display freshly cut flowers, pictures and figurines or everything that is important to you. Some living rooms are homey and lived in, where others are hardly used at all and are also more of an decor statement. A living room is not just a room where the TV is stored, and a table could be a great centerpiece to get a room where the notion of living is something in addition to watching TV.
